Delaware and New Hamp­shire hos­ted con­gres­sion­al primar­ies Tues­day.

DELAWARE AT-LARGE: In the race to re­place Rep. John Car­ney (D), former state Labor Sec­ret­ary Lisa Blunt Rochester (D) fin­ished first in the Demo­crat­ic primary, be­com­ing the heavy fa­vor­ite in the gen­er­al elec­tion. (AP)

She would be­come the first Afric­an-Amer­ic­an and first wo­man elec­ted to Con­gress in Delaware. (Wilm­ing­ton News-Journ­al)

NH-01: 2010 can­did­ate Rich Ashooh (R) con­ceded to Rep. Frank Guinta (R) in the GOP primary. (NH 1) Guinta will face former Rep. Car­ol Shea-Port­er (D) for the fourth time.

Last week, Ashooh didn’t com­mit to back­ing Guinta as the Re­pub­lic­an nom­in­ee.

“The state Demo­crat­ic Party is form­ally ask­ing that” test prep ex­ec­ut­ive Shawn O’Con­nor (I) “not be placed on the gen­er­al elec­tion bal­lot, in­sist­ing that he has not filed the ne­ces­sary num­ber of val­id nom­in­a­tion pa­pers.” (WMUR)

TRUMP TALK. The DCCC is launch­ing four new ads that tar­get Reps. Dav­id Young (R-IA 03), Erik Paulsen (R-MN 03), Rep. Car­los Cur­belo (R-FL 26), and Will Hurd (R-TX 23), and try to tie the in­cum­bents to Trump.

“The ad against Young, part of the DCCC’s $1.5 mil­lion in re­served ads there, high­lights Trump’s as­ser­tion that ‘nukes’ might be needed for na­tion­al se­cur­ity policy. The ad against Paulsen shows Trump mock­ing a dis­abled re­port­er who covered his real es­tate em­pire in an im­age that many poll­sters say stuck with voters as be­ing par­tic­u­larly dam­aging to Trump (it’s fea­tured in ads sup­port­ing Hil­lary Clin­ton). The DCCC tar­gets Trump’s views on im­mig­ra­tion in a Span­ish-lan­guage ra­dio ad air­ing on Miami-area sta­tions hit­ting Cur­belo for sup­port­ing GOP lead­ers that won’t move im­mig­ra­tion le­gis­la­tion be­ne­fi­cial to Lati­nos. For Hurd the DCCC is us­ing mul­tiple strategies. An Eng­lish-lan­guage ad, try­ing to ap­peal to the heavy mil­it­ary pres­ence in the dis­trict, high­lights Trump’s mock­ery of the par­ents of a sol­dier killed in Ir­aq for their speech cri­ti­ciz­ing him. … A Span­ish-lan­guage ad air­ing in San Ant­o­nio goes after Trump for his po­s­i­tions on im­mig­ra­tion and Mex­ic­ans.” (Wash­ing­ton Post)

PRE­DIC­TION. “House Minor­ity Lead­er Nancy Pelosi on Wed­nes­day pre­dicted that whichever party wins the House ma­jor­ity in Novem­ber, it will do so by a single di­git.”

“Either we’ll be a single di­git ahead or they’ll be a single di­git ahead,” she said on MS­N­BC’s “Morn­ing Joe.”

“But we’ll make tre­mend­ous in­roads in terms of the num­ber of Demo­crats in the House.” (Roll Call)
